22 December – 19 January
Capricorns are pretty reserved and aren’t ones for public displays of emotion, they’re probably one of the least romantic signs of the zodiac so Valentine’s really isn’t their thing. Having said that, if you do want to partake in Valentine’s festivities, Capricorns are big on tradition and only the best will do – go out for a fancy dinner with a significant other and splash out on a special gift for them (or yourself).
20 January – 18 February
Aquarius also isn’t a very romantic sign and can be quite emotionally detached; they prefer to play it cool and ignore Valentine’s Day altogether. They’re known for their independence and need to feel a strong connection to someone before making any commitments, and as one of the humblest signs grand gestures really aren’t their thing. The perfect Valentine’s is a night in practising self love – run a bubble bath, light some candles and crack out the Ben & Jerry’s we say.
19 February – 20 March
Pisces are the dreamers of the zodiac, they’re also sentimental, sensitive and love to celebrate love. Even though they’re known as the most creative sign they’re also hopeless romantics, so the perfect V-Day celebration for them involves something traditionally romantic but with an adventurous twist like a candle-lit dinner in an unusual location.
21 March – 19 April
It’s love at first sight for Aries and initial attraction and chemistry is very important for them; they’re committed and passionate and always want to make their relationships as fun as possible. However they’re also the least organised and most impulsive sign and prefer to live in the moment, so a spontaneous adventure is perfect for you whether it’s with someone you’ve just met, a friend or a long-term love.
20 April – 20 May
They’re the most traditional romantics of the zodiac, so a classic romantic evening would be much appreciated; we’re talking champagne, red roses, a candle-lit dinner and maybe some Barry White playing in the background. Make sure you’re being showered in affection, and gifts too. Some might say cheesy, we say classic.
21 May – 20 June
Geminis are passionate, sociable and in love with love. They like to keep things fresh and interesting and are always up for a good time, so whether you’ve got a plan or not just be ready to have a day filled with fun and adventure. Geminis also love dating, so if you’re single why not get swiping, take the plunge and meet with someone? Who knows – you could have the time of your life.
21 June – 22 July
Cancers are the biggest homebodies of the zodiac and spending time with loved ones is really important to them. They appreciate quality time together and are easy to please with romantic and soppy gestures, so their ideal Valentine’s evening is a cosy night in with an object of their affection – whether that’s with a friend, a significant other, a pet or Netflix. However they hate to be alone so if you’re single, gather your best friends and get prepped for the ultimate ‘Galentines’ night in.
23 July – 22 August
We all know Leos love attention, so Valentine’s is the perfect day to be showered in affection and be the centre of attention. They love to spoiled and really appreciate grand gestures of love; the bigger, the better. An elaborate Insta-worthy evening with friends or a lover is perfect – as long as they’re at the centre of attention, they’re happy.
23 August – 22 September
Although Virgo is one of the most passionate signs, Valentine’s is just another day for them as they don’t really buy into the commercial side of V-Day. It could be the perfect opportunity to have some much needed rest and relaxation from the control freak aspect of your personality. Opt for a couples massage or if you’re single participate in some self lovin’ and treat yourself to a pamper day.
23 September – 22 October
Libra is ruled by Venus, the goddess of love, which makes romance really important to them; they thrive on spending quality time with people. Valentine’s is a big deal to them so a refined and sophisticated private dinner for two is their idea of the perfect date.
23 October – 21 November
Renowned as the most sensual sign of the zodiac, Scorpios won’t have any trouble turning up the heat for a passion-filled Valentine’s Day. They’re generous, imaginative and up for anything so expect an adventurous day filled with love. If you’re single you’ll be attracting people left, right and centre, but it could be the perfect time to rekindle a romance with an old flame.
22 November – 21 December
Sagittarius are independent, free-spirited and never ones to follow the crowd. They’re always up for an adventure and love to travel, so a last-minute getaway could be the perfect plan for Valentine’s Day, whether you’re in a relationship or not.
